Elastic Bond

Miami’s Elastic Bond Combines Latin Influences With Alternative Bent

August 20, 2013 - When Venezuelan Producer Andres Ponce met the Honduran singer Sofy Encanto in Miami musical sparks flew. What started as just a recording project became an actual band.

A band with so many influences: urban, tropical, funky, electronic that the best way they could describe the connection was as an Elastic Bond . Indeed Real, the band’s first album, has it all with songs in both English and Spanish. After playing around Miami for a couple of years they signed with Nacional Records who put out their debut earlier this summer.
